Coronavirus sees this year’s Lincolnshire Show cancelled

The Lincolnshire Show has been cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus situation.

The Show welcomes more than 60,000 visitors, 6,000 students and 600 trade stands each year, and has been running for more than 135 years.

“We are extremely sorry to have had to make this devastating decision. We have been monitoring the news and advice continually but as the situation has unfolded and intensified, we know we have no alternative but to cancel the 136th Lincolnshire Show,” said Lincolnshire Showground CEO, Jayne Southall.

“The team are heartbroken, but we fully understand the government’s guidance to cancel large public gatherings and national events to help reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus. The safety and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers, competitors, exhibitors and visitors is as always our number one priority.”

The 2021 Lincolnshire Show will take place on 23 and 24 June.
